    Peterson : No Love for Canadians?

    I have a pre-republic Shamrock Canadian around here somewhere. The Canadian, and it's cousin shapes, are some of my favorites. Peterson does release the shape; but they need a supply of the appropriate briar. Hmm. Now that I think of it, I need some more Peterson Canadians...

    Equivilant blends to Frog Morton Cellar?

    Yes, unfortunately Shortcut to Mushrooms has been discontinued; the base tobaccos are no longer available. A new JFH blend called Bombadil replaced it; not a straight match for Shortcut, but an enjoyable English crossover. The Frog Morton series was a unique series, because McClelland was a...

    Christmas 2018 Peterson's Are Here!

    There are a 'K&P' and typical three box stamping, but nothing else; no date. 'Peterson Christmas 2018' and the shape number are carved into the underside of the bowl.

    Christmas 2018 Peterson's Are Here!

    I try to pick up a couple of the Peterson Christmas pipes every year, and I really dig this year's (2018) offerings (even more than the 2015 caramel colored acrilycs).

    How Many Pipes Do You Members Own?

    Just for Him's Three Newest Offerings from Their Middle Earth Pipeweed Series

    Thank you, Techie, sir! There's always that moment of mystery when a new blend is released. It's difficult to decide on taking the plunge until a few reviews finally hit. I'm just tryin' to help (one bowl at a time)! :D
